  1. Definitely their swords. It's a thing he does. (Maybe THAT explains the maester chains! Maybe he just ... borrowed them!) Meanwhile, I'm watching the new Lindsay Ellis video, and here's something interesting in the script: "If this is liberation, he [Tyrion] doesn't believe in liberation theology." I'm starting to wonder if Benioff's being what the Dragon calls a trust fund brat has anything to do with how things played out.

    Pictionary 45: topic tbd

    Yah, I'll play when there's a decent quorum. (Unless some disaster happens to prevent it, like my turning evil.)
  3. OS MAIAS is difficult and one maybe understands about three-quarters of the words on a very good day; but I hadn't thought of it as being dry. I do find Carlos not very likeable a lot of the time. (But turning it into a Textbook probably ruins it.)
  4. OK, Emmys. Probably people know this already; but it's intriguing that three actors (or two actresses and an actor, to be picky) successfully applied for nomination without any help from HBO: Alfie Allen (Theon), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), and Carice van Houten, whom I hope I'm not misspelling (Melisandre). There was a Dragon video about it not long ago. One wonders what's up with that.
  5. Also, Dragon chap doesn't think the Netflix thing will necessarily be that bad. Apparently they can't ruin any current projects, and Netflix's oversight won't let them get away with things like "BAD &&&^^%%%^&&**", etc. AND, here's the interview where Natalia Tena speaks her mind about the last season of GOT. Faye Marsay (Waif) and she are at the beginning, so you won't have to wait long: https://play.acast.com/s/wwqt/7fc94960-3bd2-4008-9bc7-c9eef0f38ba0

    Bumping for Benjen Vol. VII

    Benjen is a giant bloodsucking cactus.
  7. HC thinks GOP stands for Game of Phones.

    Bumping for TWOW V5

    OMG! I have to link this somewhere, and I think it's already in the Rant thread. Now to see if she's done part II!

    Bumping for TWOW V5

    I hope to God he doesn't change the books to match the show. I'm guessing he won't, though. The Rant thread name is kind of weird; but hey.
  10. In terms of scripts, one nugget I remember from a Dragon video is "She's cute as a bug!" That's Jon Snow ogling Dany in season 7. Dany, meanwhile, is thinking "maybe he's not as dumb as he looks." And: People have probably seen this already, but:
  11. So ... it turns out there WAS an Inside the Eppisode for the finale? Also, three actors had to nominate themselves, with no help from HBO:

    More Acrophobia Leftovers!

    Good! Here are some of mine: Dany's death: In the hogwash. Benioff hacked her diegesis. Euron wields nunchakus? Kind of ... er ... forgot. I was also playing with something like: Quietly, David Benioff wrecked girl's lines. It didn't look like working out. Jon Snow's death: Napalm bloodily eliminated dialogue failure. In the circus, eviscerated avoiding lunging clowns. Bonus round: R + L proven a hoax!
